PSV Viking Nereus gets new owner

Following a recent announcement by the Norwegian offshore shipping company Eidesvik Offshore regarding an agreement to sell on of its platform supply vessels (PSVs), Eidesvik has delivered the vessel to its new owner. 

At the end of September, Eidesvik entered into the agreement with an unnamed buyer to sell the PSV Viking Nereus. The sale was dependent on the buyer’s acceptance of the technical condition of the vessel.

At the time, Eidesvik said that if the buyer accepts the vessel, the delivery would be in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The Viking Nereus is of a UT 755L design, built in 2004 at Aker Aura in Norway. Before its sale, the vessel was laid up due to a weak spot market in the North Sea.
